Protein Homology Network
Alex Adai
Institute for Cellular and Molecular Biology - University of Texas
Project Description:
LGL (Large Graph Layout) is a compendium of software applications for making the visualization of large networks and trees tractable. LGL was specifically motivated by the need to make the visualization and exploration of large biological networks more accessible.

The website contains a rich gallery with a collection of different graphs and trees generated by LGL from different sources of biological data.

This image portraits the Protein Homology Network in an impressive visualization. The network summarizes the results of aprox. 92 billion pairwise amino acid sequence alignments between 289,069 proteins from 90 genomes. The final network is composed of 27,325 connected sets summing to 7,940,873 edges. An edge is colored blue if it connectes 2 proteins from the same species, and red if it connects 2 proteins from 2 different species. If that information is not available the edges are colored based on layout hierarchy.

I want to learn about protein homology
